I recently finished the second baby blanket that I donated in an auction for a friend with Cancer and I loved it so much it was hard to send it away! I was so happy to feel like I could help in some way and I am so glad that the little boys that received them will enjoy them. All my quilts are typically one of kind because I make the pattern up as I go along, I take pictures just in case I ever want to do it again :)
I heart me some cowboys
This is the first one I finished and sent off, I loved the colors and the different textures
The last few weeks I have had the itch once again to do some projects!! Here are some of the latest ones!!
Hooter Hider Tutorial
I know there are lots of ways to make these, but here is mine!
The below drawings were some we did as a family, I had wanted to frame them but I hadn't found the perfect ones and then I saw this and decided to make my own version. I bought some garden trellis, it comes in lots of shapes and sizes and is very inexpensive, and you can purchase it at any home improvement store tip: (I sanded it down just a bit to get some of the rough edges off)
Then I found some wooden drawer knobs like these, spray painted them with paint I already had. I then glued them, using wood glue, to the trellis and while they were drying I searched the closets and found 5 wooden pants hangers and then hung them from the trellis.
Here is the final result!! I love having the families art displayed in a new and casual way, also we can change them out very easily if we want to!!
The other quick project was this great side table I found at a local thrift store for $5.95, bought some rust orange spray paint, sanded it down a bit and sprayed it! I let it dry overnight and now it is getting along quite nicely with the other furniture in our front room!!
By no means am I the most crafty crafter out there but I do love to! So here I am opening my self up to the world and putting some of my creations on display! If you have interest in any of my aprons or blankets please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My prices are very reasonable and vary depending on the amount of detail requested! If you have something in mind that you don't see I can help bring your vision to life! C'mon you know you want to!!!!!
